Jodi – Hoorenbeek Mesh Stuff ;o)

Look out ladies Tunwarm has the Saturday Night Fever, and he is dressed to impressed. Now fellas if like me you feel the need to go that extra mile and look good then head down to Hoorenbeek and have a look at the MESH vest collection. They come in different colours and the shirts and ties are colour changeable with a HUD. The Trousers are also MESH and are available in different colours also. There is also a Three peice suit in MESH as well as a lot of other goodies. To be honest till now i wasn’t impressed with Hoorenbeek but they have upped the ante and have changed their outlook. Well done Hoorenbeek …

Another Release from GothiCatz for men and we are proud to introduce Arvid, with ripped jeans, t-shirt and leather bikers style jacket with MESH attachments. Ok I know what your asking: Why aren’t they doing the entire jacket as MESH? Well dear blog watcher I asked the same question to a GothiCatz spokeperson and the reply I got was confusing and it included something about Alphas and different types of MESH and [...] as I am a journalist and not a designer I left it at that. But all in all it’s a good outfit and I hope that one day soon GothiCatz goes the whole hog and releases outfits made entirely from MESH and not just bits and pieces …

As with all things, there are good and bad. For instance: MESH is great because a) the textures are sharper and there is much more detail, not only that but when you move the garment doesn’t disappear in your body like a sculpted prim. The downside to MESH is you need a compatible viewer to see and wear it and not everybody has the viewer and. You are missing some great stuff. Ok, about the outfit. The Blouse is MESH from The Secret Store and looks great with a short skirt or jeans or even the knee-length skirt you got in the back of the inventory you haven’t gotten around to wearing lately. Those sexy boots that Tammy is wearing come from Insolence and are also MESH, get a look at the detail I was banging on about. The downside to Insolence is they don’t do them in a fatpack so if you are a fatpack buyer it costs more, but then you can choose what colour you like instead of having all the boots you wont wear because you’re not keen on the colour. Let’s just say that before i changed my viewer I wasn’t sure about MESH, but now I’m sold …

Jodi – And a birthday party to outshine em all!

Wanna go to a party? Well I know where there is one and you are all invited… And what a party it’s going to be, at a place where you can chat, dance and have fun without drama and stress, after 2 years it’s still going strong, that has had its fair share of ups and downs and this is it’s story:

2010
22 January Bridget Hammill (aka Bethany Markova) opened the doors of a new club, naming it after a chocolate brown Labrador named Muddy.  Muddy’s came to life as a club where one could be comfortable taking their grandmother to if it existed in RL.  A place in SL away from sex and all the other so called ‘adult’ stuff.  A place free of drama and tension; A place where everybody would know your name.  Up from the prim ground textures sprang Muddy’s Music Cafe’.

“Muddy himself”

28 Jan – WilliamD Bracken shangai’d as bartender.  with those immortal words “Hey William, come check out the club I just opened.” (And he still can’t mix a Martini worth a darn). By the end of March the VIP Group had risen to 1000 members and within 3 days the traffic had hit 30,000 in a day.

In the Sept – Muddy’s changes location on original Estrella sim without missing a shift.

It hasn’t all been plain sailin; Just 18 months after opening Beth was forced to step away from day to day activities. Within a month Estrella announced its forthcoming closure. Due to logistics involved and Beth rarely online attempting to move the club on short notice is deemed financially impossible.  It is announced that Muddy’s will close at at midnight on the 26th. This came as a blow to staff and guests, many refused to accept this as the final straw. This was a second home to everybody. Even Beth herself made a brief appearance and a reprieve was found at the eleventh hour and Muddys move to a new sim. Muddy went walkabout again after the sim owner gives William 72 hours to move which was done with barely an hour to spare.

“The Muddys staff provide a 24/7 service to everybody visiting the club, everybody gets a warm welcome whether it’s the first visit or the 101st”

5 Nov – Muddy’s kicks off its new location celebrating Guye Fawkes Day with a London set complete with wrap around London skyline.

2012
Jan 22 – Muddy’s celebrates its 2nd anniversary.  Many faces have changed in both Staff and vIP groups, but Muddy’s is still the place that Beth dreamed of when she first opened the doors.  The place where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came.

“DJ’s and Hosts are always on everyday all day, all sets last for 2 hours and there is rarely an interruption in the DJ/Host line-up”

“Quotes”

Snow Enchanted-Toxx: i reemeber when muddys moved within the sim – Bou asking us all to hold hands and walk in a line to the new location as it was just round the corner

Ezekiel Jax: Muddy’s rawks

Boudicca Amat: fondest memories?
Boudicca Amat: crumbs dunno
Col Tunwarm: too many to mention?
Boudicca Amat: yeah good answer ;)
Boudicca Amat: and pretty true actually :)
Col Tunwarm: but i do remember the move across estrada
Boudicca Amat: oh yes
Boudicca Amat: I’d already started hosting then
Col Tunwarm: did you know we landed at muddys by accident?
Boudicca Amat: I think I was at muddys from amye the March of 2010?
Col Tunwarm: we had been club hopping for weeks
Boudicca Amat: I’d been off SL for almost a year
Boudicca Amat: came back in and was at a loss for what to do, looked in Search, something I’d never done before as I always went to Live acts
Boudicca Amat: Muddy’s was first TP and there I stayed :)
Col Tunwarm: i was surprised to find a dj on the stage all the time
Col Tunwarm: before that we looked for events
Boudicca Amat: it never occurred to me there wouldn’t be a DJ :)
or someone there
but it was the local chat that got  me staying :)
never knew of that before
Col Tunwarm: it was the fact that someone said hello to us and there was a dj on
Boudicca Amat: uhuh, it was just soo damn friendly
Col Tunwarm: and it wasnt just the host that said hello, everybody did
Boudicca Amat: my first maybe 3 months in SL I  don’t think I spoke to more than a handful of people and any clubs I had visited were always bare and empty, very depressing
Col Tunwarm: yeah we had that as well what i liked most was there was no events no competitions to entice people there. They came for the music and chat and fun
Boudicca Amat: oh yes, no Sploders!

Memorable Events over the past two years:
Week long Mardi Gras celebrations
Pirate weekend, onboard a Pirate ship on top of Muddy’s
Mudstock weekend (Commemorating the anniversay of Woodstock)
Week long halloween parties

They don’t need an excuse to party at Muddys, but any excuse will do. In a time when many clubs close after a few months in SL, Muddys has endured survived and fought on. Let’s hope it is around for another 2 years because I know I will miss the place and you won’t find a nicer bunch of people. But don’t take my word for it come see for your self…

You won’t be left alone and everybody’s welcome. “Where everybody knows your name and you’ll be glad you came…”

“Thank you everyone for your support and loyality over the past two years.  Here’s to many more enjoyable times.”

Festivities start at 6pm SLT on
Thursday 19th January, but it’s a party within a party

It’s a fifties revival here today and what a decade: The U.S. and her allies were testing the H – Bomb, The United States and other U.N. forces were engaged in a struggle against North Korea and China during the Korean War. In the United Kingdom the Cambridge five were exposed as Soviet spies (Philby, Burgess, Maclean and Blunt), Ruth Ellis was the last woman to hang for murder and the British Prime Minister Anthony Eden resigned following the Suez Conflict after being told off by President Eisenhower. On a lighter side Marlon Brando hit the big screen as “The Wild One”, Norma Jean Mortensen became Marilyn Monroe and Rock and Roll was born.

So what better way to celebrate the decade that rocked than to bring you the fashions and music from that golden era, Artilleri is one of the best places to shop for those awesome clothes and with a little mixing and matching I am certain you can find something to add to it. The only problem is where can you wear these awesome fashion accessories? Well if you will allow me to tell you dear blog watcher: there is a 50′s revival weekend at the bestest 24/7 music venue in SL the one and only Muddy’s Music Cafe. The event lasts all weekend and ends at midnight SLT sunday, there will be live DJ’s playing music from the 50′s as well as requests and a mix of modern rock and pop. Awesome hosts and hostesses to welcome you and show you around the club and mein hosts Bridget and William to be there to ensure your visit really rocks. Come down and see it for yourselves it really is like an extended family and you can show off your fabulous 50′s iconic fashions.
